“To everything there is a season…” Ecclesiastes
Greetings from Richlands, Virginia where I am spending a few days with my sister and her husband. We have had fun doing “sister” things like shopping for clothes and shopping in each other’s closets with “new” items for each of us. Today we will go to the Barter Theater in Abingdon, Virginia to see My Fair Lady.
I left Floyd on October 29th – with one last trip up to the Snorker’s Knob overview and perfect timing to see amazing fall color on the drive here. On Interstate 77 between Wytheville, Virginia and Bluefield, West Virginia the foliage was brilliant – like I had never experience before. The photo below is not mine. I was not able to identify the photographer.
The color is lovely here in Richlands, too – and was a perfect backdrop for Halloween displays and for the many neighborhood trick-or-treaters who braved the cold rainy night. We may have had as many as 200 adorable visitors at the door.
Now the snow has melted and the fall color is evident again. With temperatures in the 30’s, I’ll get to wear my new winter while we are out and about this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I’ll head west for a couple of days to do genealogy research and visit friends in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. I hope to experience some more “Indian Summer” Days.
